Stories like this make me sad still :(. My BF (20 years) has diabetes and it scares me sometimes to think that I could lose her if anything goes wrong. I can only imagine how stressful it is waiting and hoping your BF gets better and not knowing. I hope your friend gets better soon I'll keep you and him (and his family) in warm thoughts.
Thanks Tessa, you are a sweet young lady and very wise beyond your years...you have a big heart and are so kind....

I am glad you got something out of my advice....it is good to have no regrets when someone dies...it is hard enough to lose that person, but even worse if you were estranged or at odds with them when they were alive...

I have lost too many people that I love dearly by this point in my life...my toughest losses were my parents...this Saturday will be 16 years since my mom died and there is not a day that goes by that I don't miss her...my dad will be gone 2 years this Sept...I am fortunate that they knew how much I loved them and cared for them, so I have no regrets, except for missing them more than I could have ever imagined....

Thanks for your prayers, they are much appreciated...

I have an update about my friend....

He is still alive, but still very, very sick...he is still in ICU...

I have been speaking to his co-worker that I met last year when he picked us up at the rental car agency to take us to the dealership when we picked up the Camaro in Virginia after taking Amtrak from NY to VA...

I will be finding out more in the coming days and I would appreciate everyone's continuing prayers...

I told Mike's friend to let him know that I am sending my love and prayers and also the prayers from my Camaro5 family too...he will pass that info to Mike about all of you praying for Mike's full recovery when he sees him...

Thank you all for being there for me, and also being there for someone you never even met, just because I asked for help...

I wholeheartedly agree - I used to be terrible at holding grudges - but since my divorce I have grown so much and have learned to let things go (takes a while sometimes but I'm much better at it ). It doesn't do us any good to stay angry over stupid things.

Glad to hear he's still hanging in there and I'm sure all of us will continue to send well wishes and prayers and all that warm fuzzy karma stuff over to you and your buddy and his family.

Thanks a lot!!!...please keep the prayers coming...he's not out of the woods yet...

Due to wanting to respect Mike's privacy, I can't go into details, but he needs all the prayers he can get....

I haven't been able to speak with him yet, he is still heavily sedated and still in ICU...

I am so touched by all of you on here that are helping to support Mike with your prayers and well wishes...

By supporting him, you are also supporting me, and I feel so blessed by all of you and the caring and concern given to someone you have never met...

Thumbs up UPDATE!!!

I just spoke to Mike's friend and he said that Mike called him today and he is now in a regular room, and very, very weak...he is very, very grateful and thankful to be alive...he knows how close he was to death last week...

They had him up and walking a little bit today too....I am hoping that maybe next week I might be able to speak to Mike myself...right now he does not want phone calls because he is just too weak and too sick...he has a very long road to recovery ahead of him... :(

I told his friend to tell Mike that I have everyone I know praying for him to have a full recovery...I have it posted here and also on my facebook page, so that's a lot of prayers...so far they seem to be working...at least he is alive a week later after his very serious emergency surgery...

Thanks a lot for all your help by praying for him...I am sure when I am able to tell him about all of you sending prayers his way that he will send his thanks...

Keep 'em coming please...

Thank you all very much for caring so much about someone you have all never met, who means the world to me, just because I asked....

You guys/gals are just the greatest...that's why I consider you all 'family'...

I will keep you updated as I find out more....

Any and all prayers are still needed in the meantime...

thanks Lori!!!... I plan to tell him when I finally get to speak to him on the phone...

I don't know if you know that Mike now lives in Virginia and I am all the way up here in NY, so there is no way for me to see him... :(

I am just hoping I can call him within the next few weeks as he recovers and hopefully makes it back home at some point...

thanks Becky and everyone!!!...I will try calling the dealership tomorrow for another update on his condition...

I don't want to be a pest and call every day, but it's so hard being here and not having daily communication and updates...:(
